This week has been another busy one for Sharks. We had a fantastic Sports Day – the sun even joined us…. for the morning! We competed with energy, enthusiasm and a collaborative attitude. It was a massive success! We carried on with making the props for our opening ceremonies, ready for Monday where we will create the choreography for the performances. We also continued our work around the graffiti art style. In English we used art to inspire the next section of our retelling and pulled in all our writing skills from this year to add details and semi-colon lists. Finally, we had our transition morning in school – so Year 6 went and completed the props whilst Year 5 welcomed the new Sharks in…. we are sure they are going to be a great addition to the Shark legacy.
Another really busy week for Seahorses. We started it off by having our own mini Olympics style day on Tuesday. Unfortunately the weather had other plans and decided to rain for most of the day which meant we were unable to go and practice all the races we had wanted to. The children however were resilient and instead enjoyed playing with the giant parachute in the hall. We then practised some different skills such as speed bounce and throwing as well as an obstacle race on the playground. In the afternoon the children created their own games which they then played on Wednesday in PE. The children also made their own paper aeroplanes and we had different races for those in the afternoon. Throughout all the sessions there was some great collaboration between the children. Well done Seahorses!
This week has been assessment week and Dolphins have shown true resilience and resourcefulness which has lead to a really successful week. Alongside that we had a very exciting Olympians Topic Day. We took part in lots of activities: boogie bounce (exhausting), archery, handball, singing ( for an upcoming surprise) and we learnt some Japanese and how to say hello in many other languages. We have also been working on our collaborative community scarecrow competition so look out for that this weekend along the front fence of the school.
